One thing which was drummed into me when I was at college was “In loco parentis,”While children are at school, teachers are supposed to take on the safety and protection of students, the same way a parent would. It seems that teachers are now being called upon increasingly to stand between children and bullets. Several brave teachers made that very courageous decision last week. Some of them did not survive.
No greater love has any man than to lay down his life for his friends (or in this case students)
